Vehicle id?

I was not aware that Morris Garages (MG) had ever produced an engine that even apporached 1 hp per cu inch

The little Honda S-600 is a lot closer in terms of "when" (although not right on either!)

The vehicle I am thinking of appeared earlier than that!

(and were millions of MGs or Honda S-600's sold?)

49cc motor bike, scooter Moped and motorcycle engines, like the Suzuki 50 have been around for at least 40 years.

49CCs = 3 cubic inches........ The average 49cc engine produces about 4.5 HP.

3 x 1.5 = 4.5/3 =1.5 ??????????????

Suzuki 50cc?

But the Suzuki 50 cc bikes of 40 years ago were two-strokers!
The engine I am thinking of is a 4-stroke, pushrod (not even o/h cam!) engine with only 2 valves per cylinder!

OK, OK, close enough - I am thinking specifically of the Honda Super Cub. Model C-100. 49 cc, (just about exactly 3 cu in), 4.5 hp.
The famous Honda 50!

It first appeared in 1958! There have been over 60 million sold worldwide and they are still going strong.

It formed the entire basis of the Honda Motor corp, which first started with motors for bicycles just after WWII, (called the Cub) then built their first bikes, incorporating the new engine in 1958. (and called it the Super Cub) By the early 60s they were all over the world. The Beach Boys had a song about them. Honda got its start in cars with the S-600 and it was only possible because of the huge success of the Super Cub. A recent show on the top bikes of all time named the Super Cub as the single most important bike of all time ("You Meet the Nicest People on a Honda")

My parents gave me one for my birthday in 1965. It was my first "motorbike" and I learned to ride on it. Even though I went through a succession of other bigger, faster, heavier rides, I never sold that one. When my son turned 15, he learned on the same one I learned on. I still have it, it is still reliable as an ax, still starts on second kick (cold) and first kick (warm), it still gets about 200 mpg, and still tops out at 43 mph.

(Now if only ALL engines were that good, that efficient and that reliable!)


OK Duntov - your turn!

Really, it is the Hot shot? I had to google the name, I but that little Crosley Roadster was the first thing that popped into my head.

What's funny is I gave away my best question in my story about the Honda S600! Darn it, I wasn't thinking.


Ok, here's my question. I am a V8 engine and my intake manifold bolts FLAT on top of my heads. With my intake manifold off you can lay a ruler across both intake surfaces and they are perfectly flat. What V8 engine am I?

Brian
